Residents of villages in Ukraine's Kherson region bordering occupied Crimea complain of a cough and a rash after recent acid leaks in the north of Crimea.

Doctors have visited people in the villages, while those who have complaints and want to be examined are bussed to Kherson regional hospital, the TSN Ranok TV program reported.

The villagers are examined by otolaryngologists, dermatologists and pulmonologists. People complain mostly of burning in the throat and a rash on the skin. They are convinced they still feel the consequences of the August chemical emissions at the Crimean Titan plant on the Russian-occupied peninsula. However, mobile laboratories taking air samples have not recorded excess of harmful substances in the last two weeks.

Children who were taken to the health resort in the town of Skadovsk in early September are to return to the village today.
